Unbeatable flag materials and manufacturing process
Customizing a printed street flag is a lot of fun, but choosing the right design isn’t the only choice you have to make. You have to make sure you choose a flag manufacturer that takes flag materials and the manufacturing process seriously.

- Dye sub and screen printing options, depending on your budget
- Inks and dyes have UV protection
In addition, all of our printed street flags are individually packed in poly bags to maintain their quality and integrity, no matter how many flags you have shipped in a single order.

Frequently Asked Questions
Get answers to the most frequently asked flag questions
What material should I choose if my banner is going outside?
The strongest material choice we have is our 200D knitted polyester option. That makes it the best option for outdoors. Combined with our high-quality stitching and printing processes, you can rest assured that your printed street flags will look great outdoors without fading, tearing, or fraying when you choose this option.
Can I change the shape of my printed street flags?
Absolutely! The rectangular shape is the most common choice for printed street flags, but there are plenty of other shapes that look striking when lining the street. Some other shapes include:
- Feather Street Flags: These flags are curved at the top, making them look a bit like a bird’s wing.
- Teardrop Street Flags: These flags are curved at the top as well, but they have a straight edge, giving them a teardrop shape.
- Triangle Street Flags: These banners are pointed at the top and bottom, creating a right triangle.
If you don’t like any of the existing shapes we’ve created, we would be happy to manufacture a custom shape just for your printed street flags!
How long can I expect to use my flags when they are outside?
How long your flags last depends largely on how they are displayed. A flag that is flown outside all day and night, as well as flags that fly outside during heavy rain, snow, or wind, will wear out a lot more quickly than a flag that is only displayed some of the time, or one that is brought in during inclement weather.
The government standard for street flags is six to eight months, so you can expect your flag to last at least that long. If you want to get more use out of your printed street flags, bring them indoors during bad weather and at night.
Can I choose different images for the front and back of the flag?
Yes! Not only can you design a double sided flag with the same image, you can choose a different design for the front and back! To ensure both images are crisp and clear, we add an additional middle block-out layer so you can’t see through the flag to the design on the other side. However, it is important to remember that a double sided flag with a middle block-out layer is heavier than a basic printed street flag, so it won’t flap in the wind as freely.
What kinds of bases can be used with printed street flags?
Printed street flags are manufactured to be placed on a fixed pole. For example, cities and municipalities often use these kinds of flags on light poles to advertise community events and holidays.
If you’re looking for a freestanding flag, we have other options that would be a better fit. Check out our display banner flags that can utilize inground spike bases, four-leg bases, car wheel bases, and wall brackets.
What is the difference between dye sublimation and screen printing?
Dye sublimation is a full color printing technique that is best for intricate designs. There is no limit on the number of colors that can be used, so it’s a great choice for images and pictures. There are no setup costs. Although you’ll receive a discount on bulk orders that utilize our dye sublimation printing process, the discount will be smaller than the discount associated with screen printing.
Screen printing, in contrast, can only print spot colors. For this reason, the price of this printing technique is dependent on the number of colors being used. It is the best choice for content-heavy images and logos. Screen printing has a higher setup cost than dye sublimation, but there are greater discounts for bulk orders, making it a good choice if you’re stocking up on printed street flags.
How long will it take to print the flags after I approve the design?
The standard production time is between 7 and 10 days. However, this timeframe varies depending on the details of your order. Smaller orders and basic orders take less time than large orders and complex orders. Because production times can vary, we always provide a turnaround estimate when we provide you with your quote. That way, you know exactly when you can expect to receive your flags.
Are there discounts for bulk orders?
Of course! In general, you’ll see bulk order savings at around 100 pieces, but the exact amount depends on the details of your order. The more you buy, the more you’ll save. Higher pricing tiers are associated with more savings. If you’re considering purchasing more to save more, just let us know, and we’ll tell you more about bulk discounts when we provide you with your estimate.
Can I design my flag myself online?
Yes! We would be happy to help you create a flag design, but if you already have exactly what you want in mind, just use our online creator tool. This tool allows you to upload and arrange your images yourself so you can make tweaks in real time. You can save the design to purchase at a later time, or you can add it to your cart and purchase it as soon as you’re happy with all the details.
Why aren’t there any prices listed on your website?
Many variables go into all of our flag designs. From the printing process to custom shapes and the size of your order, there’s no way for us to provide accurate prices on our website. Instead, we focus on understanding the details of your order so we can provide you with cost-effective options that fit your budget.
